One of my favorite birds.

I thought they were mainly insect eaters, but I saw this one today hovering and picking off grass seeds. Or maybe it was an bug on the grass.

Only a few birds have that white band on their tail feathers like they were dipped in white paint, so it makes for a pretty definitive ID.

Gathering nesting material rather than foraging?? Just a thought....

Strix.
